Racial Equality Project

Creating awareness and action for the realization of racial equality for all.

Racial Equality Project: Diversity & Inclusion

Universal Spirit Center is committed to inviting Diversity and embodying the practices of Inclusion in our community and in our spiritual presence in the world. 

What is Diversity and Inclusion:

They are complementary terms that depend on each other.  Diversity describes the variation in personal, physical, and social characteristics that exist, while inclusion refers to the procedures organizations implement to integrate everyone.  In other words, diversity indicates the “what” and inclusion the “how”. This is a living document that will have resources to help us all take steps to become more inclusive in our community and within our family and friends.  We challenge you to participate by visiting this page, sharing this document and joining us at our meeting (every 2nd & 4th Tuesday @ 4pm via the community room link on the USC website) and by sending us your suggestions and or questions.

Steering Committee: Gino Walker, Carolyn Floyd, Pat Andrus and Cathleen Cienfuegos


Wise Words

Conquer the angry one by not getting angry.
Conquer the wicked one through goodness.
Conquer the stingy with generosity,  and the liar by speaking the truth.

Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance.
